Every once and while, I hear a song that makes my heart ache, it is so good. Imogen Heap has several songs with Frou Frou that make me feel that feeling in my gut. Now I have heard a couple of songs from her upcoming solo album, both good, but I can't stop listening to the haunting and moving "Hide and Seek." Maybe I like it so much because it seems so applicable to my life now. For all you OC, I didn't just shoot my boyfriend's brother, who earlier tried to rape me, to keep him from killing boyfriend with a telephone to the skull.

I don't have an mp3, but you can buy it at iTunes and on her website.

Les chansons pour les personnes qui les souhaitent ont parlé français

This work week hasn't come without its share of stress. But when I listen to Carla Bruni, I can close my eyes and pretend I'm listening to her sing in a café in Latin Quarter of Paris. The songs are a little folky, a little neo-chanson and completely charming. I googled her and was surprised to learn she is an Italian supermodel known for her nude shots. Plus she's a heiress that dated Donald Trump and Eric Clapton (bad taste in men but good taste in music). A supermodel that can play the guitar? Knowing this kinda ruins the image I had of her, but I can still enjoy the music.

Carla Bruni - Tout le Monde (expired)
Carla Bruni - Raphael (expired)
Carla Bruni - Quelqu'un M'a Dit (expired)

Appréciez les chansons, mes petits amis.
